Road to GES 2017 in Hyderabad

As a lead-up to the Global Entrepreneurship Summit 2017 (GES) which is all set to happen in India, many events are taking place around the world, bringing together the startup ecosystem, business community, innovators and change makers all under one single roof. One among these is Road to GES: Beyond Boundaries, a unique conference where for the first time ever INK (India’s leading thought-leadership platform), T-Hub (India’s largest startup incubator), NITI Aayog (National Institute for Transforming India, GOI) and Telangana Government are coming together as hosts!

Taking place from 26-27th November, 2017 at the HITEX Exhibition Centre in Hyderabad, Road to GES: Beyond Boundaries will feature an inter-disciplinary lineup of thought leaders and entrepreneurs from emerging technologies like AI, Big Data, Blockchain, Cybersecurity, and IoT, mixed with innovations in social and cultural entrepreneurship. The two days will cover in-depth discussions, practices and policies that will let India leapfrog the legacy systems and move into an innovative future.
